New York City protesters disrupted President Donald Trump’s speech to honor American veterans on Monday.
The president joined the annual Veterans Day parade kickoff event in Madison Square Park, the first president in history to do so.
Trump said he and First Lady Melania Trump came “to express the everlasting love and loyalty of 327 million Americans” for veterans.
As President Trump began his speech, protesters gathered in the side-streets shouted: “Lock him up!”

President Trump arrived in New York City on Saturday, where he stayed the rest of the weekend in his home of Trump Tower.
Since he arrived, some leftist New Yorkers have flipped off the president’s motorcade and posted pictures of themselves flipping off Trump Tower.
